Journey through 2000 years in search of the Holy Lance the spear that pierced Jesus' side as he hung on the cross and which some say grants its holder godlike powers.

Coveted as a source of power for 2000 years, the Holy Lance is one of the most unusual of all Christian artifacts. Rumored to be the spear that a Roman soldier plunged into Christ's side as he was on the cross, the Lance is coveted as a source of divine power.

Journey to the very corners of the earth in a real-life "Indiana Jones" quest to uncover the mysteries surrounding this sacred artifact. Did Attila the Hun, Charlemagne, and even Adolf Hitler once possess the Holy Lance, as some have alleged? More importantly, is the story of the Lance true, and is there any real evidence of its existence throughout history? See three spears which people today claim are the Holy Lance and explore why some still believe in their power when, at the very least, two cannot be what they claim.

Learn the complete story of one of the most puzzling and mystifying relics of Christianity.
